Nursing & Allied Health Rural Locum Scheme (NAHRLS)
The Nursing and Allied Health Rural Locum Scheme (NAHRLS) is a component of the Australian Government’s National Health and Hospital Network Reform agenda and aims to remove some of the barriers rural health professionals face in accessing leave. NAHRLS was established under a contract awarded by the Department of Health and Ageing to Aspen Medical in 2011.
NAHRLS supports and recruits suitable locums to enable rural professionals to take leave for continuing professional development (CPD), training and personal leave whilst enabling organisations to back-fill their positions to support ongoing service delivery.
NAHRLS employs the locum and the scheme supports all locum recruitment, travel and accommodation costs so there is no extra cost to the local health service.
